The New Nigeria Peoples Party has raised an alarm over what it termed as false propaganda geared towards discrediting Governor Abba Yusuf of Kano State and Senator Rabiu Musa Kwakwanso.
This was made known by the National Working Committee of the party in a statement on Monday
While notifying the general public about the malicious actions and utterances of some expelled members of the party, the NWC of the party said in its statement that some individuals have been hired to disparage some leaders of the party, including Gov Yusuf and the party’s presidential candidate in the last election, Senator Rabiu Musa Kwakwanso, according to Daily Post.
The NNPP statement, signed by Ladipo Johnson on behalf of its National Working Committee under the leadership of its acting national chairman, Abba Kawu, stated: “Certain expelled members of the party, which include Tope Aluko and some ex-state chairmen, who are sponsored elements, are conducting a press conference in Jabi, Abuja, to falsely state, as a form of propaganda, that H.E. Abba Kabir Yusuf was not a member of the NNPP at the time of the election and that His Excellency, Senator Rabiu Kwankwaso, is dismissed from the party.
“We state that the Kano State Governor was a bona fide member of the NNPP at all material times and that we have confidence in the Supreme Court of Nigeria that justice will be done.”
The statement also affirmed: “We remind the general populace that Chief Boniface Aniebonam, one of the founders of the NNPP, recently spoke out in favour of Governor Abba Kabir Yusuf and asked that his election be upheld.”
